How long after your missed period should you take a home pregnancy test?

As soon as you miss the first period a pregnancy test should show positive if you are in fact pregnant. There are some tests on the market that you can take 5 day prior to your expected period and get an accurate result. In my run ins with pregnancy tests, I've always tested the day after I expected my period to make sure that it wasn't coming and the results were positive. It all depends on your hcg levels too, if it's low you can get a false negative, even if you miss a period. A blood test can usually pick it up but you may have to wait until your second missed period to get a more accurate hpt.

Does a brown blood period while on the pill indicate pregnancy?

no i would say not. i was on the camila pill, a pill with only progesterone in it, and i got the same thing. i was on the pill for about seven months and that happened starting after about a month. my doctor said that might happen due to hormonal changes in my body/ More input from FAQ Farmers: * Nah... I wouldn't worry about it. I was on the pill for about 10 years and would occasionally have this. My doctor said it was just old blood. If you are really worried about it, see your OBGYN! * Not necessarily. I just went through it. It is common if you have just started taking the pill. You can potentially have brown blood for three months while your body adjusts. Or if you have missed a couple if pills you can have "break through" bleeding that will occur prior to your actual period. Give a quick call to your doc and they will explain it. I have recentlty learned that its quite common.
